After their chemistry clicked in Love Aaj Kal and Aarakshan, actors Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone were signed together for the third time in Cocktail, as the makers felt that their pairing was “safe”.
“Deepika has developed as an actor and Saif is amazing in this genre. People love to see him this way,” says Cocktail co-producer Dinesh Vijan.
Talking about the first look of the film, which has created a lot of buzz on the Internet, Vijian adds, “The response has been great. We thought of releasing it on the Internet because the reach is wider, and it then goes viral.”
